Frankfurt am Main Emergency Medical Services Makes Masimo Rad-57 Pulse CO-Oximeters Mandatory for All Vehicles
Date:8/26/2010

IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Frankfurt am Main Emergency Medical Services (EMS) in Germany and Masimo (Nasdaq: MASI), the inventor of rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry™, rainbow Acoustic Monitoring™, and Masimo SET® Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, today jointly announced that every EMS vehicle in the city of Frankfurt, Germany will be equipped with a Masimo Rad-57® Pulse CO-Oximeter—making carbon monoxide (CO) screening by Pulse CO-Oximetry a city-wide EMS requirement.  

Frankfurt am Main is the first city in Germany to mandate the use of Masimo Rad-57 for CO screening and to equip every ambulance in town with this lifesaving technology.  More than 30 Rad-57 Pulse CO-Oximeters, which noninvasively measure the amount of CO in the bloodstream, were purchased to protect the health and safety of Frankfurt citizens and paramedics from the dangers of undetected CO poisoning.  

Carbon monoxide—an odorless, colorless, toxic gas that is impossible to see, taste or smell—is the leading cause of injury and death by poisoning worldwide.  Also known as the "silent killer", CO can kill before you are aware you are being poisoned.  According to the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air, approximately 2 billion people worldwide are at risk and an estimated 1.6 million premature deaths occur worldwide each year due to CO poisoning.

Dr. Leo Latasch, Medical Director for the Frankfurt am Main EMS, commented: "With the Rad-57, our paramedics just slip the noninvasive finger sensor on the patient and press a button.  Within seconds they can see the carbon monoxide and oxygen saturation levels in the blood, as well as pulse rate, right there on-the-spot—without having to draw a single drop of blood."
